Is this a leak that is regime-approved or a leak that will be punished by the regime?

Well, since DC’s intelligence community has been oh-so-right about stuff like how far along North Korea was in its nuke program, and that Iran had stopped nuclear weapons work in 2003, imagine how right this supposition is going to be.

How would our intel know??? Our intel has failed so many times... or maybe they are being ordered to fail... that is the problem with the US government... you can no longer trust them or anything that they say.

E, I’m assuming these missiles can only be brought in by ship. I imagine it could be done overland, but would need the permission of the involved countries.

You don’t think the Russians would really ship advanced surface to air missiles to Syria, do you? After all, if they did that, they might be crossing a Red Line drawn by Obama, and we all know what would happen then. Oh.....wait a minute.....nevermind!

If it’s brought in by ship, I’m assuming it will not have a big sign on it saying “missiles on board.” Russia would be cautious about deceiving countries on an oveland shipping rout, though.

IT doesn’t matter what they have, if Isreal is the target no amount of missiles would be enough for Syria to survive!

What’s really important to know is if the Russians will be willing or able to get weapons to Americans when the time comes. RPG’s, Mortars, Heavy Machine Guns, Hand Grenades, Silenced Sniper Rifles, Plastic Explosives, Land Mines, things that are hard to get at Walmart.

There's basically no way the missiles could be shipped in without being spotted.

Keep in mind there are many different kinds of advanced missiles - Anti-Air, Anti-Ship, ground to ground, etc. The articles is referencing one type of anti-air missile.

Right. Obastard completely failed to notice a US Senator crossed the Turkish border into Syria to be photographed posing with terrorists, so we can be assured when he tells us missiles haven’t. Got it.

But that was McCain. Nobody notices him. Maybe next he’ll not realize that his suitcase was really an advanced missile from Russia?

You have a point. Wish I could fail to notice him, but I'm in AZ.

Be brave. He may not run for reelection. Only a few more years. Keep saying that.

He’s Senator for Life. And will fight any conservative who tries to change that tooth and nail. And Flake, the new Senator from AZ, is just like him but much younger (and he doesn’t believe in term limits either).

At this point I’m more inclined to believe Syria and Russia over the Obama administration.

MA has the Kennedys. That I can understand. SC has the Thurmonds. Also understood. But AZ is in the heart of flyover land. What is a Northeastern RINO doing there as Senator for life?

I think the S-300 was designed with air shipment by Antonov in mind.

Would take several trips.

Thanks! It seems it would be hard not to notice an Antonov landing in Syria these days.

Obviously, that’s why I wondered why Syria would lie about having them. If Assad were smart, he’d keep his mouth shut and stop pissing Israel off.

He is smart. He’s spinning it that the rebels are in league with Israel, or Israel is in league with the rebels, and that he is the Palis’ Obiwan. In a country that’s 1. Arab, 2. Islamic, and 3. fascistic, that’s how you score political points. So pissing Israel off is how he builds this rep. Whether or not he has the hardware is besides the point, at least in Syrian politics. Provoking attacks by Israel and making sure there are plenty of civilians in harm’s way is icing on the cake. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s got a lot of longish lead-lined crates full of scrap metal that he sends in convoys up to Lebanon just so that they will be attacked.

Yes, the first rule in the ME is to bash Israel, tragically.
